The Initiative for Smallholder Finance
The Initiative for Smallholder Finance (ISF) is a multi-donor and investor platform for the development of financial services for the smallholder farmer market. It was launched in May 2013 with the intention of making marked progress toward closing the gap between the over $200 billion in smallholder financing need and the current $50 billion supply in Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, and South and Southeast Asia. Small Foundation has provided unrestricted funding to the ISF to help build core staff capacity of the ISF team. Small Foundation made a financial contribution to ISF and Rural and Agricultural Finance Learning Lab’s latest State of the Sector report 2019/20.
